the manipulator, new issue 2010
Never owned one and only ever heard about it but The Manipulator was an eclectic counter-culture photography magazine that started in 1984. Main thing I remember being told about it was how it was really large format, which sounds great but actually meant that it was a bugger to look at and even harder to keep in decent nick. Not good if you’ve got a bad case of magazine OCD. A major influence on contemporary publishing and advertising. Word has it there’s a new issue on the way.
